    NOT Celiac friendly. Host rolled his eyes when we asked if they had a GF menu. Waitress was clueless. Manager said they don't prepare separately and suggested the Minneapolis location instead. Edit: Jonathan, do you work there? If so, your post says everything. I posted my review on an app for others looking for GF food as a warning. Why are you here? And no, my nose wasn't pointed in the air - why would I be proud or snobby to have a severely limited diet?

    Called to see what was available. The person who answered the phone had a attitude and said " it's not like we have a gluten free certified kitchen or anything." Being celiac I would say stay away. This is for the trendy gluten free people.

    Among the best breakfasts I've ever had. The GF corn and blueberry pancake was eons beyond the typical mass-market pancakes served elsewhere. The GF toast was a honey multi seed bread, and they knew to serve it without butter (to avoid CC) without my even asking. Even a homemade GF Mac and cheese on the kids menu...my daughter was in heaven! We'll be dreaming of this place from now on. Also, we were too full for the bakery case, but I counted 19 GF options, including some beautiful cakes.

    They are very knowledgeable about what you can and cannot have. Also everything is clearly marked on the menu. There is a fair number of GF options.

    Sorry celiacs this location isn't for you, they make GF and regular flour dishes in the same kitchen! Crazy right? I mean who would dedicate an entire space in their kitchen for 1% of their customers. If they rolled their eyes at you it's probably because you started out with your nose pointed towards the ceiling when you asked for the gluten free menu.

    Good gluten free cajun hashbrowns. The bakery selection is good. The poppyseed muffin I had was okay, but definitely gluten free tasting. Chai tea was nice. I will come back again to try more.
